Volunteering at the Two Oceans Aquarium

Not sure how many people are curious about this but I thought I'd share anyway - today was my first day as a volunteer at the Two Oceans Aquarium here in Cape Town. We had our orientation session, and now we will have six weeks of training (with written tests!) before we can start the front-of-house volunteer work. Later on we can apparently progress to penguin feeding and other fun things

I took some pictures:

The "Mountain streams" exhibit upstairs - it really looks as though it's out of doors

The "nurse shark nursery" behind the scenes in one of the classrooms. So cute.

One of the girls (I think it's a girl?) in the predator tank

A classroom behind the scenes. How cool to have a little marine tank on every desk

And a self portrait with a shark

For anyone who want's to check it out the Two Oceans website: Two Oceans Aquarium Cape Town, South Africa
